Recently, during the announcement of Operation A.B.L.E., Police Chief James D. Chadwick reminded community members that the department offers the opportunity to participate in the ride-along program. Although the ride-along policy has been in place for twenty (20) years, Chief Chadwick emphasized, along with operation A.B.L.E., that the best way to get an up-close view of a police officer’s daily duties is to join them in the patrol car. Most who have participated in the program over the years come away with a broader perspective of law enforcement in general, and the Dalton Police Department in particular.
If you are interested, or have questions about the program, contact Angela Kittle by email, or at 706-278-9085, extension 120. You may also download the Ride-Along Application and fax it to 706-217-2075. Be sure to include a contact phone number.
